This is the all new TECNO Camon 18 Premier, and with this smartphone you dont need a gimbal., Well sort of.. This footage was captured using the TECNO Camon 18 Premier and its just insane how stable the footage is. AS you can see, the 12MP Gimbal camera on the TECNO Camon 18 Premier injured the 12MP camera on the Samsung Galaxy A52. But when it comes to the Redmi Note 10 Pro hmmm that Redmi Note 10 Pro is looking more stable to my eyes. Anyways. Before I tell you more about the TECNO Camon 18 Premier with the stabilized gimbal camera, let me show you whats. Inside the box., The TECNO Camon 18 Premier comes in two colors. Polar night and Vast sky. Ni Tori olonu, which one is polar night and vast sky. Again, lol. Anyways, the one I have here is the Polar night color and I like this color. Its elegant..

It has a plastic frame and glass at the front.
For Protection. It has glass made by AGC its a Dragon Trail glass, which is a protective glass cover that is strong and is scratch resistant. Granted it is scratch resistant, but for the strength, a dollar is not 565 Naira Im not doing a drop that. No way., but for The water test, this smartphone doesnt, have an IP rating. I submerged it in water for 5 mins and everything was ok.. I am not saying you should dip your smartphone in water.. If e happens, no call me o, but if it happens, as you can see, the TECNO Camon 18 Premier will survive it. For the external features at the bottom. The TECNO Camon 18 Premier has a 3.5mm audio jack a mic. A second mic is located at the top, a USB type C Port and a mono speaker that is loud enough, but lacks bass.. On the left side, it has a dual nano sim card and memory card. Tray. On the right side is where you will find the volume and power button..

It is a bright display at 550, nits, certainly useable outdoors.. The colors are vibrant. I, like the size of the display, it is good for consuming media. The negative of the display. Is it doesnt support, HDR10 and HDR HLG Content., But for watching youtube its a good display.. Also with the mono speaker consuming media is hmm not that immersive, it wont suck you in. Youll have to use headphones to enjoy consuming content on this smartphone.. I love what TECNO is doing with the Camon lineup., Giving it an AMOLED Display on half of all Camon fans out there. Thank you TECNO.. This means a lot. Now lets talk about the Processor in the TECNO Camon 18 Premier.. It comes with the Mediatek Helio G96 Processor., Just like the G95 Processor. It is still a 12nm Processor, but slightly faster. With the Mediatek Helio G96 processor. You get Faster scrolling with the 120Hz refresh rate. Fast and reliable 4G connectivity speed. Dual 4G sim support and gaming is slightly better. Before I show you how the TECNO Camon 18 premier handles some of your favorite games. Let me show you some synthetic benchmark. Scores. For Antutu the TECNO Camon 18 Premier scores 344k, which is around the same score of the G95. For Geekbench. It has a single core score of 510 and a multi core score of 17′ For 3d mark TECNO Camon 18 Premier scores 1108, which is a good score for a budget smartphone.
Multitasking on the TECNO Camon 18 Premier is a breeze and thats because it comes standard With 8GB of RAM. Throw anything at it and it is going to retain it in the background. For gaming lets start with Call of Duty.. It played the game at medium, graphics and high frame. Rate. Shey this phone dey whine me ne abi my eyes: dey pain me.. So it looks like the g96 isnt optimized for call of Duty yet because smartphones around the Camon 18 Premier price range play CODM at very high graphics and very High Frame rate.. The gameplay was alright: the phone didnt get hot, but the mono speaker isnt, making gaming on this smartphone immersive. For PUBG. It played the game at HD, graphics and High Frame rate.. The gameplay is good but again to enjoy this game with this smartphone. You will need to use earphones.. Luckily, you get one in the box.. Real Racing played well on this smartphone with no issues and yes, the gyroscope works on this smartphone. WIth the TECNO Camon 18 Premier, you get no ads, which is a good thing.. Also, the User interface Hios V8.0 has been cleaned up.. The notification area looks different. The icons way better now and the settings have been cleaned up as well. The funny ringtones are still there, but I am liking. The clean interface of HIOS v8. For update Sources from TECNO said the Camon 18 Premier will get Andriod 12 update.
. I am Loving the direction TECNO is taking. For the user interface. I just wish we had the option to disable or enable the swipe down from the notification. Area. Swiping from the top left side shows you. Your notification, while swiping from the top left side, shows you the control center. Now for the cameras, the front facing camera on the TECNO Camon 18 Premier is a 32mp camera.. It captures skin tone. Well, the bokeh shot looks good.. Sometimes it can be too sharp, but it captures good pictures.. Just take a look at this picture.. This is beautiful. Really loving the skin tone, but, like I said it can be a bit too sharp. The front camera handles dynamic range. Well, as long as you turn on that feature. Moving to the Rear cameras, the TECNO Camon 18 Premier has a 64mp main camera, a 12mp ultra wide camera, which is also the gimbal camera and an 8mp periscope telephoto camera.. The main camera takes decent pictures.. The colors. Look natural. Bokeh shots, look very good. For the 12mp Ultra wide camera. Well, i like how it increases the saturation a bit.. It takes good pictures., The 8mp periscope telephoto camera. It can go from 5X to 60X and in video mode it can only go up to 15X. For the battery. The TECNO Camon 18 Premier comes with a 4750 mAh battery, with a 33 watts fast charger., To charge this smartphone from 0 100. It took 1hr 4mins, which is fast.
For the battery usage. I got around 7hrs screen on time. Now for the Price the TECNO Camon 18 Premier goes for N182000 or 322.. The positives are, it has a good build. Performance is good for a budget smartphone. The 32mp Selfie camera is alright and the main camera is alright. For the negatives at its price range. It should come with an HDR display, but if you are not into watching HDR content on your smartphone, you will be fine. The 12mp ultra wide telephoto camera is a conversation starter with the way it moves, but the final results wont blow you away. I wish it came with dual stereo speakers., So this is my review of the TECNO Camon 18 Premier. Leave a comment and I will reply to you lets get talking in the comment section below..
